    any HVACR companys hiring in Kansas City?

    I have been laid off since June 23rd and am getting fed up with not working. Everyone is cutting back and laying off it seems and the only interview I had was with Trane. and they didn't even call me back. so now im fed up. Im an excellent tech with good initiative and I can troubleshoot anything if given the time. I have worked as an install assistant and a prevent/service tech. Looking for a good steady job.

    I live in Colorado Springs and have been laid off myself, I was working for the union as a controls installer for Set Point Systems Corp but there aren't any other contracters looking for people because of the economy here in the Springs. So they told me to look out of the union and have had a tough time here in the springs. I only worked for three weeks because I was not fit for the Job which was on a construction site.

    The reason I am responding to you is because it has become increasingly clear that I need to start looking out side of Colo Springs in order to find a job. And Denver seems to be the next best option for me.

    If you know someone who is hiring it would be a great help, I would need relocation assistance,. I have me EPA universal certification.I

    How come your other job ad says you'll pay $26 to start and up to $35 after 2 weeks?

    If you have trade tickets Alberta, then we start at $26. Labour laws and codes are very stringent here. So I have hired guys from different provinces and they don't know the codes here. Just takes a couple of weeks to bring everyone up to speed. Anyone with 3 years of experience will be getting close $28 to $30

    Doing research and saw immigrants make considerably less than nationals.

    I don't have any trade tickets. Only my degree, EPA license, and a Nate card for gas heating that will expire this year. I have 5 yrs hands on. Graduated in '98. What am I worth?
